2016 HYT Waiver Process

The 2016 HYT waiver process has concluded.  All members who submitted waiver requests have been notified.  Members who did not receive a waiver will have their separation authorizations completed completed by PSC-epm-1.  Communication regarding the 2017 HYT process will be released via message traffic and posted on this website.  Members and commands should refer to the FAQs, and use the HYT calculator to determine when someone may become a candidate.  If you have any questions please contact us via email at
